Continuing the theme of "characters from Matt Groening TV shows" what with Fry Road last, Skinner Road only has a few items of note. It doesn't cross the railroad, though Greenhouse Road is on the other side and (allegedly) "stubbed out" for expansion. Should they be connected, it would add a relief route to Fry Road. This section, for reference, covers Skinner Road proper to Cypress Creek.
24815 - Although it seems like an anachronism with every passing year and the continued development of the area, there's a shooting range called Hot Wells Shooting Range. Hot Wells has a natural lake, and I read it used to be a public swimming hole for a while. It's also one of the few unprotected crossings along 290, and if Greenhouse/Skinner goes across the railroad, the crossing would probably be closed, with access gotten from the expansion. [UPDATE: Sometime around summer 2018, this became "HW Shooting Range" for reasons unknown. There's no official reason surrounding this, and the only reference I could find was this forum post which happened months after the fact]
25210 - The Cypress Park & Ride is part of the Cypress Village Station complex. The building was built on the site of a Chevrolet dealership off of Skinner (demolished in the early 2000s but looked to be closed by the 1990s).
25222 - The main Cypress Village Apartments component of above. For the rest of this, at least what it looked like as of 2015, check this out.
24500 - Built c. 1979 by Texas Instruments, this building was spared the cuts in the mid-1980s, but closed in 1993. Hewlett-Packard picked up soon after for use as a call center but it closed sometime in the early 2000s, and in February 2007 it became the first new 290 park and ride since 1989. After a permanent park and ride facility was built next door, it remained empty again for a short while before 2010 when Sysco purchased it.
